SPEAKER / Tuesday 4 September 2018, 12.30pm at RMIT Building 1, Level 2, Room 17
Yu Fang Chi is a Taiwan-born jewellery artist. In 2014, she moved to Melbourne where she studied PhD degree at RMIT University, School of Art, Gold & Silversmithing. Her research project investigates the concept of femininity in jewellery and objects and its cultural connotations. Yu-Fang introspects the processes of making and the position of female body. Her practice involves repetitive fibre-related techniques which can be connected to traditional domestic art processes.
Yu-Fang works across different facets of jewellery practice and collaborates with diverse artistic fields. Her recent curatorial project assembles jewellery narratives with the potential to bring subjective encounters into wider social assignations.
Her artwork has been exhibited in international institutions and platforms, such as Talente 2008 and Schmuck 2009 in Germany, Cheongju International Craft Competition in Korea, and exhibitions in Japan, China, Poland, India, and Estonia.
